Access Free Assistance
Sustainability at Work is a comprehensive, free resource available from the City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. Once enrolled, you are matched with Sustainability Advisor who can help your business identify low- and no-cost actions to go green.
Your Advisor can come on-site to complete a one-hour assessment, identifying your opportunities to conserve resources, improve efficiency, save money and provide a healthy and quality workspace for employees. Together with your Sustainability Advisor you'll create a plan to green your workplace. Your Advisor stays on-hand to answer questions, connect you to peers and to resources from our partners–from recycling boxes, to faucet aerators, to grants and incentives.
Sustainability at Work offers three levels of certification to recognize your business’s positive impact on our environment and our community. Certification will help you share your achievements with staff and customers, and capitalize on your success.

“Our efforts at the MAC would not be as successful as they have been without Sustainability at Work's assistance. Their team of dedicated and knowledgeable experts assessed what our situation was, material and cultural, and made meaningful recommendations. They even assisted with our communications and training challenges. Recycling and composting is working here only because of their help.”
